Automatic Art Analysis

In this project, we study fine-art paintings by using computer vision and machine learning techniques. We introduce the SemArt dataset, a multi-modal collection for semantic art understanding in which painting images are associated to some artistic attributes and a textual artistic comment, such as those that appear in art catalogues or museum collections. We study semantic art understanding as a multi-modal retrieval task, where relevant paintings are retrieved according to an artistic text, and vice versa.

Image-to-Video Retrieval

In this project, we address the problem of identifying a video scene in large-scale collections of videos by using only static images. We propose two models to exploit temporal redundancies in video, one based on binary features and another one based on CNNs and RNNs. We also present a framework to find interesting fashion items in videos based on image-to-video retrieval.

Publications

Parking Detection

This project addresses the problem of detecting and classifying parking spaces in either car parks or in the street using 3D reconstruction techniques and feature analysis. The project was conducted at G@TV group at Universidad Politecnica de Madrid and it was funded by the Spanish Industry, Tourism and Commerce Council and the ERDF (reference TSI-020100-2011-57).

Publications

Heart Rate Estimation

My first computer vision related project conducted at Gradiant as my final undergrad project. We implemented a system to estimate the heart rate of a person by using facial video information.
